    Hello, anyone willing to have a stab at translating the following?;

    "This application may be inspected or purchased at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy, at the offices of Fingal County Council during its public opening hours of 9:30am – 4:30pm, Mon-Fri, and a submission or observation may be made to Fingal County Council in writing and on payment of the prescribed fee (€20.00) within the period of 5 weeks beginning on the date of receipt by the authority of the application."

    Needed for a planning notice as gaeilge, any help appreciated.

    Quick update, Google translate give this result, my knowledge of Irish is limited but it looks like it does the job;


    "Féadfar an t-iarratas a scrúdú nó a cheannach ar tháille nach mó ná costas réasúnach a ghabhann le cóip, ag oifigí Chomhairle Contae Fhine Gall le linn a huaireanta oscailte poiblí de 9:30-04:30pm, Luan-Aoine, agus aighneacht nó tuairim a dhéanamh chuig Comhairle Contae Fhine Gall i scríbhinn agus ar íoc na táille orduithe (€ 20.00) laistigh den tréimhse 5 seachtaine ón dáta a bhfaigheann an t-údarás an t-iarratas."

    Again, any suggestions as to improve the legibility are welcome. :)

    Do NOT use Google Translate!

    I'll get you an accurate translation as soon as I have access to my laptop.

    Táim ag iarraidh Gaeilge a chur ar 'Feenagh Soccer Club'. Bhfuil 'Cumann Sacair Fíonach' nó 'Cumann Sacair Fhíonaí' i gceart ?

    Cumann Sacair Fíonach is what I think it is but wait for answers from those more astute in grammar.

    What An File said is usually true but I think the above translation is good. I would, however, make one alteration. Where County Council is written on the second occasion, it should read "Comhairle Chontae Fine Gall". I am open to correction, so wait for more answers.
    On Fingal County Council's website is written " Comhairle Contae" which I believe to be wrong.
